Alix it also has a cup of butter in it... This is a yellow cake due to the eggyolks... Alice Waters has a fabulous recipe for this cake, as there are many variations, her's IMO is the best...

I think that it is a Swansdown Cake flour recipe. Really old fashioned cake.

Thanks, everyone. I think I'm going to give the 1-2-3-4 cake a try. Sounds about right. I'll let you know how it turns out. It's not cast in stone, so keep the ideas coming. I haven't turned the oven on yet.

Katie, I look forward to hearing how your cake comes out. My husband also has a memory of a cake his grandmother used to make. It was very dense, heavy and moist. I have tried once before to make one I thought would match what he remembers. I am willing to try again. Depending on how yours turns out I will start with that one first, then if that is not what he is looking for I will continue with the other suggestions that others have left here.
